“Bowls for all”

Who needs 2 legs!!

We exist to foster and encourage participation in the sport amongst our members according to the rules laid down by our national body, the English Short Mat Bowling Association (ESMBA) and to offer advice and guidance to our members, clubs and leagues on matters that relate to our sport. We also represent the interests of our members at meetings of the northern (NESMBA) and national (ESMBA) Associations of the sport.

A Management Committee of 10 Officers is elected annually to run the Association and they meet as necessary to review progress and discuss issues. Together with one representative from each member club they form the General Committee which is only convened if there are key policy decisions that need the agreement of the wider membership.

An AGM is held at the end of the season in April/May
